Get Some Hanky Panky!

A few months ago, I received a birthday present in the mail from my sister-in-law. What was inside the packaging surprised me: 2 pretty thongs. First of all, let me say that I have never been a thong person. I tried them here and there--especially during my newlywed days--but they just never were "me". I always felt uncomfortable, unflattering and I felt a little exposed and fat in them! Well, the note accompanying my birthday gift instructed me to give them a try because they were my sister-in-law's favorite panties and she loved getting other girls to try them. Well, I gave them a try and I am now hooked!!

These thongs are made by Hanky Panky and they are one size fits all, so they conform to your body shape. They're not tight, itchy, or make you feel like you can't wait to get them off at night--they're the perfect fit! I've worked out in them, too, and they held up great. They are also very flattering to the figure and, of course, they don't leave the dreaded panty line. Let me also say that these panties make me feel like I am wearing nothing. In fact, my husband went to Nordstrom's last weekend to purchase my Mother's Day gift. He asked the sales associate that his wife likes "these panties that feel like you're wearing nothing". Without hesitating, she took him right to the Hanky Panky table and let him choose the colors he wanted, and by the way, they come in every color imaginable.

This brings me to the point of where you can buy these things. I know that they are sold at Nordstrom for about $18 a pair. My sister-in-law also says they're sold at Nordstrom Rack for about half of that. I even found two pairs on Ebay (brand new with tag, of course!), which were even cheaper! Trust me, once you try a pair, you will want to trade out your entire underwear drawer for some pretty, lacey thongs:)

I'm going to ebay right now!

Donna, I love this post. Working out in a thong...that's the selling point for me. I've never been able to work out in them. I love all the colors too.

And again, Roy gets major points for going up to a sales clerk and asking about them!!! That's a Mother's Day gift thats for YOU and HIM! :)

I might've perused Ebay last night. Thank you for the tip. A girl can't have enough undies that are comfy AND pretty. Those are hard to find.

I agree....major props for yo man. Wish I could've been a fly on the wall.

I heard about these undies and I am thinking I might have to try a few pair.

Can never have too many pairs of panties! I like that they seem so flexible too! That is important cause I move around a lot.

Now, I haven't worn a thong since my newlywed days either. They almost seem passe, but you make a great case. Do you know if Hanky Panky fits plus-size butts?

Donna - did we not discuss this at Zumba? Thongs are the best! I'm emailing you right now!

Kristi said...

I am still grossed out....do you feel like you have a constant wedgie?

Donna said...

Kristi--like I said....you feel like you are not wearing anything. They are honestly the most comfortable panties I have ever worn.

BrooklynShoeBabe,

In my search on ebay for these, a plus size option did come up that is supposedly one size fits all for sizes 10-26. Not sure how that works b/c that's a wide range but that's what it said.

KRISTI, you've just won a lifetime supply of thongs in honor of turning 40. JUST KIDDING but since you ARE the big 0 now, let your hair down. Go wild. Just give em a try. :) What do ya say?

These look so pretty and sound great...I might just cave in and buy a pair.
